Korean Air boosts Russia flights with Aurora deal

Korean Air has announced a code-share partnership with Aurora Airlines on the route between Incheon-Sakhalin.

Aurora Airlines is a Russian Far East air carrier and a subsidiary of Aeroflot, created by merging SAT Airlines and Vladivostok Air.

The carrier flies to 18 cities in four countries with 13 aircraft including the B737.

Aurora Airlines’ flights code-shared by Korean Air to Sakhalin are operated by a B737 aircraft, seating 110 passengers.

Aurora Airlines’ flights depart from Incheon International Airport on Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sundays at 12:00 noon and arrive in Sakhalin at 16:45 the same day.

The return flights depart from Sakhalin at 09:30, arriving Seoul Incheon at 10:50 the next day.

Alongside Korean Air’s current routes between Incheon-Moscow (five flights a week) and Incheon-Vladivostok (daily), the codeshare flights to Sakhalin will provide increased convenience and choice to passengers travelling to Russia.
